How is that possible?
Moonfire dots and Sunfire dots
Celestial Alignment buffed dots
Nature's Vigil buffed dots
Incarnation Chosen of Elune buffed dots
Astral Communion preventing the need for hard casts to reach an eclipse
Eclipse buffed dots
Granted I think wrath needs a little lovin, but that isn't what this thread is about :)
You should have seen us Balance druids with rathrak and CoC :)
And Jozie, that's something every Balance druid has been asking since they decided to split MF/SnF as two separate DoTs. We don't know why.
Uhh....I know why.
They experimented with 1 DOT. It sucked. They experimented with Fae Empowerment (1-DOT). It also sucked. They gave back a second DOT, Sunfire, to help movement DPS strategies.
LSS: SnF > IS
I remember doing a WSG against a worgen boomkin that just destroyed everything using nothing but moonfire. According to recount, he didn't even use insect swarm and cast wrath and SF less than 10 times.

If it is mechanics, with astral alignment or whatever increase moonfire / sunfire damage while spamming it, they could have just allowed IS to stack to three during solar eclipses or something to compensate.
You are missing the entire point of the removal of IS for sunfire, i don't blame you since your avatar is a dk so ill explain.
In cata i would be full pve and just stay in solar eclipse and spam double BUFFED dots and shroom. The key word is buffed.
MoP the double buffed dots is now a 3 min cd instead of 100% uptime
And i dont think 10m damage is that much, in cata i would pull 10-14m constantly in pve heroic with my other full pve guildies.

So that you have two DoTs but they aren't both boosted by a single eclipse. IS would still be boosted by solar, along with sunfire. You just sat in Solar forever in BGs and casted full power DoTs on everything, only leaving when you had to SS burst someone. So now, no more double powered up DoTs unless you use a CD.
